Ram trucks are highly admired for their combination of power, capability, and comfort, and the Ram 1500 is a perfect example of why this formula is such a winner. The range has recently been given a thorough overhaul to make it even more competitive, so what are the features that standout of the latest 2020 model?


Available Cabin and Bed Formats 


 


The 2020 Ram 1500 is available in two cabin formats, the 4-door Quad Cab with a 193cm bed, or a 4-door Crew Cab with a bed size of either 193cm or 170cm.


Performance and Capability 


The most popular Ram 1500 powertrain is based around a 3.6L V6 engine producing a highly respectable 305 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque. Those who want a little more power can trade up to a 5.7L V8 producing up to 395hp.


However, the most interesting powertrain option is new for 2020. The 3.0L EcoDiesel turbo mill produces a handy 260 horsepower, but the torque level of of 480lb-ft makes this configuration a real powerhouse when it comes to real-world work.


 


All this power shows up in the 2020 Ram's award-winning payload and towing capacity. For smaller loads, the 1500 can haul up to 1,052kg in the truck bed. However, hook a trailer up behind and the Ram can pull up to 5,795kg, making it a clear towing leader in the half-ton pickup class.


All models in the 2020 Ram 1500 range are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with a choice of either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive depending on trim.


Standard Features 


At the entry level, the Tradesman trim comes in with 18" steel wheels, cargo area lighting, heated side mirrors, and an infotainment system based around a 5" Uconnect touchscreen


 


The rest of the range sees much improved features for the 2020 model year, and moving up the trims can add valuable off-road extras including all-terrain tires, a Class IV receiver hitch, hill descent control, electronic locking rear differential, and more.


The top-end Limited trim combines the underlying Ram 1500 power with luxurious comfort and enhanced technology, boosting the infotainment touchscreen to a full 12", upgrading the upholstery to premium leather, and adding active safety features including blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path warnings and trailer detection.


Pricing (MSRP)


For 2020, the Ram 1500 has a Canadian starting price of just $44,445 for the base Tradesman level, rising to $76,945 for the full-featured Limited 4x4 Crew Cab version.
